Is color-blocking the new trend?


Have you heard about color-blocking? Well, if you have and understand what it is, then good for you but in case you were confused just like I was at the start of this year about my life...SORRY, I meant color-blocking then this is the right place for you. We shall talk about the challenges of life in the next blog.

So what is color-blocking? what does it mean? who came up with the term? is the trend here to stay? Well according to Wikipedia, "Color-blocking is thought of as the exploration of taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations. It is commonly associated in fashion as a trend that originated from the artwork of Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian."

that answers a lot of the confusion related to color-blocking, now the main dilemma how does one color-block, in my experience its all about playing with colors until you find multiple perfect combinations (where LCM = HCF maths reference). 

one of my favorite bloggers who really plays with color-blocking is @summeralbarcha; she really has experimented with the whole color wheel.
